La Maison Bord’eaux hotel – 150€ to 300€

Located in the heart of Bordeaux, yet away from the noise and hubbub of the city, this recently renovated hotel is situated in an old coaching inn of the 18th century. It has been stylishly decorated and has all the modernity the discerning traveller expects of a boutique hotel.

All the rooms and suites at the hotel have en-suite bathrooms with shower or bathtub, all with complimentary toiletries. Each room is equipped with TV, WiFi and coffee making facilities. Some of the rooms have their own private terraces or balconies overlooking the city or the inner courtyard.

A buffet style breakfast is served daily in the glass-roofed breakfast room or, if the weather is conducive, out on the patio beside the pond. Or maybe take afternoon tea where one can partake in a selection of local delicacies, teas and coffees. In the evening head for the wine bar or courtyard to sample the specialities of the region.
